I don't know if I know you or I don't, or if I've bought from you or not.
But, to me, its just common sense that if we collectively continue to produce higher quantities of lower quality roots, we have no right to whine about lower prices.
Let me give you a quick example I noticed last evening. Remember potato chips at Walmart were nearly $5 a bag recently, and the shelves stayed full. But, they cut the prices to just under $3 a bag and the shelf stays nearly empty. So what happened? The end consumer wants potato chips -but they were resisting buying them at $5. When the store cut the price to just under $3 a bag, the shelves are nearly always almost empty.
There is a price break point there. A point at which for whatever reason, the end consumer is unwilling to buy the product. They might buy some, but not nearly as much as they did/or would at the lower price. Now, if the potato farmers continued to demand more money for the crop, what do you think Walmart would do? Right...they would not buy nearly as many potato chips to put on the shelves because they would be selling a lot less of them.
